We went to visit the in-laws and needed a place to stay. We normally stay at time shares which most of the time are 5 star so going to a Motel was a new concept. We were very pleasantly surprised. For the price it was a very good deal. Though it was a little rough with the shower ceiling needing work and the towels being alittle weathered the room was large thoughthe window shades could have been darker, the shower water pressure was awesome, the bed comfortable and the tv good. We sat on the dock and drank and had appetizers one night to a great sunset. Another day we fished off the dock andhad a great time. Another couple pulled in on their boat. it has a small pool that did the trick and everyone we dealt with was nice and helpful. I would definately recommend this place and go back

Room Tip: There are end units that we didn;t stay in, butlooked awesome.

We just spent a long weekend at The Boat House Motel on Marco Island. We've stayed at the high rise hotels on Marco but you can't beat the location and service provided by this family owned business. It was clean, convenient to restaurants and the pool and dock area are right on the inlet and just steps from your room. Manatees and dolphin greet you in the morning and the evening sunsets are great from here. We highly recommend this quaint place that still knows the meaning of pleasing the customer.

Room Tip: Select one of the rooms with balcony overlooking the water for a great view.

Having to travel quite frequently on business and staying at the typical chain hotels the Boat House offers the business traveler a relaxing stay. You can enjoy fishing at the dock or simply check out the Manatee that maybe in the area. Either way it is a great place to mix business and get some pleasure out of it. Truly an enjoyable place. Great place to bring the family!
The hospitality that the owner provides is exceptional I felt like part of the family. The accomodations are great with the entire facility being up to date.

Room Tip: Get an upstairs room and enjoy the view from the balcony.

We recently stayed at the Boat House Motel.Owner let us see 2 available rooms and we chose room #1.. It had a nice balcony with chairs and a table. We had a view of the river and could have cocktails and watch the dolphins feeding. Nice deck for fishing and a crystal clear pool for a dip. Great Stay.
